The press release says a coalition of Boston groups demonstrated today against the unloading of illegal Rhodesian cargo at Boston's Pier 1; the ship, the African Dawn, is owned by Farrell Lines and has been cited six times since 1972 for violating United Nations sanctions against trading with the white minority regime in Rhodesia. The press release says the coalition protesting the importation of Rhodesian goods is composed of members of the American Friends Service Committee, the African Liberation Support Committee, the Southern Africa Coalition and variety of other individuals and groups. The press release says longshoremen in other cities, including Baton Rouge, Baltimore and Philadelphia, have refused to handle Rhodesian cargo; the International Longshoremen's Association Executive Council voted earlier this year to honor the United Nations sanctions against Rhodesia. The press release says for further information contact Pat Farren (AFSC) or Dinizulu Seitu (ALSC).
